Default Old to New

I picked up a bunch of old topwater baits at a local yard sale. I sanded one down and painted it with my airbrush and this was the result. After replacing the hooks and buying the bait I have about 60 cents in the project. Let me know what you think. Old to new pics.

I airbrush remote control car bodies on the side and I used some of the paint I use for that. One brand is createx and the other is faskolor. Hobby lobby carries the createx and any hobbyshop carries faskolor. I had some clear in a spray can laying around. Make sure you let the paint sit over night before clearing it.
